McNeil Consumer Healthcare Announces Voluntary Recall of One Product Lot of TYLENOL® Extra Strength Caplets 225 Count Distributed in the U.S.
Date:6/28/2011

FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- McNeil Consumer Healthcare, Division of McNEIL-PPC, Inc., is recalling at the retail level one product lot (60,912 bottles) of TYLENOL®, Extra Strength Caplets, 225 count bottles, distributed in the U.S.  The recalled product was manufactured in February, 2009. McNeil is taking this action following a small number of odor reports, including musty, moldy odor. The uncharacteristic musty, moldy odor has been linked to the presence of trace amounts of a chemical known as 2,4,6-tribromoanisole (TBA).This voluntary action is being taken as a precaution and the risk of serious adverse medical events is remote. TBA can generate an offensive odor and has been associated with temporary and non-serious gastrointestinal symptoms.

The product lot number for the recalled product can be found on the side of the bottle label. FULL RECALLED PRODUCT LIST:Product NameLot NumberUPC CodeTYLENOL®, Extra Strength Caplets, 225 count
